Airport Express Network

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
First post guys bear with me......

I have my 17" iMac connected to a 802.11G Netgear router that I use for my wifes Wintel laptop and my iBook. I just received my AE and want to use it at my stereo. My question is how do I configure the AE on my iMac which has no AE card, just connected via ethernet?

Any help is appreciated.

    I think you have to have an airport card in your computer to use Airport Express-I thought too that it would work off the Airport module itself, but apparently not. It works either off the card or directly via an ethernet connection.

    In theory, you can enable "AirTunes over Ethernet" on the "Basestation Options" area of the AirPort Configuration utility.

    I have not done this with my setup, but I have read that this converts the WAN ethernet port to a LAN port.
